How Our Lift Chairs Simplify Daily Life

As a dependable sit-to-stand aid, our chair makes it possible to perform daily tasks by yourself. When used in the home, a VELA Chair can assist you with:

  • Safely sitting down and standing up.
  • Navigating around your living space while seated.
  • Ergonomic support that improves comfort and posture.

While these activities may seem routine for the average person, they can be frustrating and difficult for those with limited mobility due to aging, a disability, or a medical condition.

VELA Chairs were created to minimize these challenges while promoting a heightened sense of independence, allowing you to conserve energy for hobbies and social activities.

A Safe and Mobile Stand Assist Device

As an easy-to-operate sit-to-stand lift, you can adjust the chair’s seat height at the touch of a button. When paired with the VELA Chair’s four, smooth-running wheels, this adjustability feature elevates your mobility capabilities to a whole new level.

Designed with your safety in mind, our chair has ample room for feet without having to worry about the wheels blocking your movement. Once you’ve lowered the seat and released the brake, you can easily “walk” or push the chair from room to room while sitting down.

Fight the Dizziness

Do you suddenly get dizzy when standing up too fast? Simply set the sturdy brake before transitioning from a sitting to standing position. The seat will then provide support as you slowly place your feet on the floor and stand up, avoiding any sudden movements that could cause dizziness.
